Liking fanfic but rarely being interested in AUs is a curse
its a fucking curse
Like AUs are great and fun to do because its a lot of creativity and what ifs but for me so much of why I love characters has to do with how the setting shaped them/their relationships that unless I HAD A HAND in an AU I will usually always pick a canon universe art or fic over an AU.
Like if I know the writer/artist and I already like them thats a much higher chance but when Im goin through A03 im like “is there just a Turn Off AUs button”
not to say aus are bad, aus are awesome, theyre just not something im usually interested in
